What is Grass Fed Beef?

The American Grass fed Association defines grass fed as “food product from animals that have eaten nothing but their mother’s milk and fresh grass or grass-type hay from birth to harvest - all their lives”

There are a variety of health benefits associated with grass fed meats.  Grass fed meat is leaner than grain-fed beef and is lower in fat and calories (see our Beef Recipes page for more information on cooking lean meats).

Studies have shown that grass fed meats contain more Vitamins A and E, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and Omega-3 fatty acids, all of which have been shown to lower cholesterol, diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure etc.

Many factors affect the flavor of meats.  A diet of pasture versus grain, has a large effect on the meat flavor.  Besides changing the fatty acid content of the meat, most people describe grass fed meats as being a more INTENSELY flavored meat.
